Interview with Recognized Developer Faryaab

Welcome to another episode of XDA-Interviews, where we try to talk with those members that have been developing on XDA to bring us great ROM´s and applications.

This time, we will talk with Faryaab, a 14 year old Chef who is actively working on the XPERIA X1, the HTC Desire, and on the Samsung Galaxy S.

orb3000: Thanks a lot Faryaab for giving us some time for this interview. So, you are 14 years old, I dare to ask how long have you been developing and how did it all start?

Faryaab: It all started from my HTC Wizard. I wanted Windows Mobile 6 on it and was searching a lot in Google and came on this site first i was blown away with the work the developers had done. Then i started flashing my Wizard I was a really happy user. The same thing also happened to my HTC Artemis but when i got my XPERIA X1 i was the happiest KID EVER. Then i started to learn how to cook Windows Mobile ROMs and started cooking them for my X1. Later on I found out that my X1 can run Android. I was really amaze that a phone can run 2 OSs. Then I became the Android developer of the X1 and since then i bought two more devices the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S and the compatibility of the phones were out of the world and then also started cooking for them.

orb3000: Why is it that you chose the Xperia, the Desire, and the Galaxy S for cooking? Was it just because you have those devices? Or perhaps you saw something special on them?

Faryaab: I only had those mobile phones and in my opinion they were the best phones at their time.

orb3000: What advice would you give to the members who are willing to learn the art of cooking?

Faryaab: Just don’t give up and keep trying and searching and you will definitely succeed.

orb3000: What is your opinion about Windows Phone 7? Will you consider cooking for that platform?

Faryaab: I think Windows Phone 7 OS is has real potential but it needs more productivity. Maybe I will cook for Windows Phone 7 OS but not soon.

orb3000: Do you have plans for cooking for more devices? If so, which ones?

Faryaab: I will be cooking for the Samsung Galaxy S II device when I buy it later this year.

orb3000: What do you do for living?

Faryaab: I’m a student so I study.

orb3000: Why is the name for your ROM´s F1?

Faryaab: I name my rom series F1 because I love formula one so my every Android build name start’s from F1.

orb3000: What is the main problem you have faced cooking for Galaxy S?

Faryaab: Bugged stock Samsung base firmwares.

orb3000: Are you planning to expand your work to other devices or operating systems in the future?

Faryaab: Yes after Android I might start cooking for WP7.

orb3000: Thanks a lot for your time and we hope to talk to you later on.

Thanks to all our readers.
